This blend is made from two antibacterial and calming herbs Marigold and Chamomile. Good for stress, sleep, antibacterial clean out and general anti inflammation.

Marigold (Calendula) is a plant in the genus Calendula of the family Asteraceae. Marigolds are native to South-Western Asia, Western Europe, North Africa and the Mediterranean. There are many types of Marigold throughout the world now being cultivated in a wide variety of colours. Loved by gardeners for its captivating appearance, the flower heads are edible and are usually added to salads. Marigold also has a rich history of traditional use as a medicinal herb.

Chamomile is known as a relaxing herb. It may work as a sleep aid; the calming benefits of Chamomile are derived from its antispasmodic properties, which help to relax muscular and nervous tension.

Chamomile’s long list of health benefits comes from the more than 120 chemical constituents it contains, which include:

  • 28 terpenoids
  • 36 flavonoids
  • 52 additional compounds

Many of these compounds are pharmacologically active, meaning they contain ingredients that are actively effective in treating a concern, much like the main ingredient in a medication. For example, α-bisabolol and cyclic ethers are antimicrobial, meaning they can fight against microbes like bacteria, while chamazulene and α-bisabolol are antiseptic, which means they can prevent the growth of microorganisms or help destroy them.

Marigold is used internally for inflammatory conditions of internal organs, gastrointestinal ulcers, constipation, worm infestation and dysmenorrhea. It is also used as a diuretic and diaphoretic.

In a in-vitro study, an extract of Calendula was shown to induce formation of new blood vessels, which is important in the process of granulation.

The results of numerous studies on the mode of action are available. The flowers are antimicrobial, due to the terpene alkaloids, lactone and flavones contained in the essential oil. Flavonoids isolated from flowers of Calendula officinalis demonstrated positive antimicrobial activity (at a concentration of 1 milligram/millilitre (Dumenil et al., 1980)
